I selected this piece for the study because the tile seems very close to the style of Duust Muhammed . I do not think he painted it but it is a question as to why a painting attributed to Mirza Ali shouldbe so close in style to Duust Muhammed.

As I get further into this project I feel I can tentatively attribute this picture to Shaykh Mahammad.
